I never thought that I would see the day that my wife’s waistline would be as large as mine… but it’s true! She’s wearing my pants now and they fit quite well actually.
I look at her belly and it’s one of the most beautiful things in the world. To think that there are two growing developing babies in there… bopping around in the mosh pit of amniotic fluid and umbilical cords….
Although part of me is still trying to deal with the financial realities of being a dad to three children I’m very excited to see them. What will they be like? Will they be smart? Will the be kind? Will they have a love of the Lord and a love for their heritage?
Looking at Nicolas and how he’s so much like me and so much like his mother, I know that they way they will all turn out is partly determined by how we raise them but mostly how good of an example we are.
There are so many things that I want for our children. I want them to have the best educational opportunities possible. I want them to have good careers… I want them to have good families.
But most of all, I want them to have a happy childhood. I was fortunate enough to have a happy childhood for the most part. I want them to have happy memories, good memories of being with with their parents brothers and sisters. I don’t know if children are getting that these days.
Anyway, enough rambling.
